One favorite brand and one favorite product – MAC and lipstick! How cool does that sound? For me, that sounds pretty awesome! Here comes the review of another lovely and gorgeous lipstick shade from MAC’s Sheen Supreme range in the shade “Zen Rose.” Read on to know how it fared:
Rs. 1600/- for 3.6 gm.
My Experience with MAC Zen Rose Sheen Supreme Lipstick:
The packaging is simple, smart and functional, which is enough for me. The body is unlike typical MAC lipsticks. It is a slim and slender packaging with a shining body and sticker at the base with the shade name. If you have more than one of these in your collection, you might have to remember the name or open up each one as there is no color coding. The cap shuts with a click and hence there is no chance of it opening up in the makeup pouch.
MAC describes the shade as a bright mid-tone fuchsia, I would like to add that there are hints of purple in it; a beautiful shade for all age groups and skin tones. It adds instant freshness to the face and a must-have for the pink lovers (wink).
You have to get one of these to know how beautiful the texture of the sheen supreme range is. It is more like a gel lipstick for me with the shine of a gloss and the pigmentation of a lipstick. It glides super smooth on the lips with no tugging or pulling. It is advisable to line the lips as the texture being gel like, there is a probability of smearing. Though it never happened with me, but if you like to use this as an all-day lip color, it is better to line the lips with a n*de/pink/mauve liner. Lip balm is absolutely not required, as this gives enough moisture to the lips. The lips remain hydrated even after the color disappears.
The lipstick is highly pigmented and only one swipe deposits enough color to cover the lips well. The opacity can be increased by swiping the lipstick multiple times. There is absolutely no cakey feeling when you swipe the lipstick more to build up the pigmentation. On the contrary, you might end up getting unwanted deposits in the corners due to the texture of the lipstick.
The staying power is approximately 3-4 hours maximum. You have to use a liner/base to enhance the stay of the lipstick. Not a con for me though, but people who do not prefer touching-up the makeup throughout the day, might find this a bit bothersome.
